A Special Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people who are all close to my heart!

Lots of love and prayers to you all.

 
I stand before you and thank you from the very bottom of my heart for all that you have been to me and to my family.

Thank you for your kindness, love, support, and above all your valuable prayers. To me, as like all of you, family means a lot to me.

We are united ONLY WITH LOVE. I always feel the LOVE VIBRATION in my family. I feel so BLESSED about my family as I feel with you all.

Your love and support was greatly appreciated. Everyday morning and evening, we prayed the rosary and celebrated the mass that helped us for our healing. In a way, it was and is a witness to the community as well.

The whole family sends their love and gratitude to all of you.  Each and every one of my members were taken aback by your support and your love. It meant an immense amount to us in these most difficult times.  Thank you again.

I am Back at St. Gabriel and Quaratining to Keep Our Parish Family Safe

My dearest family, the ONLY reason I came back right away to the parish squeezing away my so-called holidays is for the launching of this ABCD.  I came back and was quarantining and went for the COVID test which turned to negative. But, out of love and concern for all of you, I will still remain a few more days of quarantine and bounce back to normality.  Thank you for your understanding.

We are the church.

One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity.

 

Friends, as we know we are all going through an extremely very difficult time. All of us have our own concerns and anxieties and concerns about the future and about our own lives. We are the Church finding new ways to uphold our faith in action. Together, we are the Church: a universal body of believers delivering to all peoples everywhere a faith-filled message of hope and love.

Your commitment to the Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive, the ABCD, helps the universal Church, in your name, to serve so many in our communities. The ABCD brings hope to the hopeless, strengthens the faith of the discouraged, and provides charity to those most in need.

We are the Church. Together, as Disciples in Faith and Missionaries of Hope, the Love of Christ urges us on no matter what challenges may come our way.

One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity.

 

When our faith is tried by the inevitable disappointments and tragedies that this life brings, we must remember that the Lord is faithful to His promises. If the Lord takes us to it, He will bring us through it.

May I request all of you to prayerfully consider supporting the ABCD? Your support, no matter how small and big they are, it’s going to make a huge difference in the life of others.

So let us actively be involved in our faith and prayers.

God bless you all.
With love and blessings,
Ever at your service.

 

—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

What is the Sacrament of Confession? Why do we need confession? What are the benefits of going to confession? The Sacrament of Confession is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God, our neighbors, and the Church.

Thoughts on healing a broken heart… Thank you for your love and care. It’s the greatest and warming feeling that one is being loved, we hear that Christ longed for this acceptance from His people when he lived here in His time.
